Hi, welcome to LQ!

It would be helpful if you told us which distribution you're
using, and what make and model the wifi adapter is.


Cheers,
Tink

And which version of Linux?

Please also describe (copy & paste? attach screenshots?) the
discrepancies between what you see and what you expect.


Cheers,
